Scientist Study Use of Water Power. Waste Called Criminal. The possibility of a comparatively early exhaustion of our coal and oil sup plies, and the vital necessity of develop ing water power as a substitute tor non-replaceable resources, is receiving the earnejst (consideration of business men and scientists. Incidentally, a number of methods for obtaining greater results from the natural fuel resources not at our command have come to light re cently. Speaking on Uiih subject, the American Exchange National bank, in its currency circular says: "If our scientists are to be credited our fuel supplies, both of coal and of petroleum, are approaching practical ex haustion, and demand serious considera tion as to conservation and the develop ment of substitutes. Secretary Lane, who long has been recognized as an authority on the subject and a strong advocate ot conservation of food, particularly of oil, is very pessimistic, as to the latter, pre dicting the exhaustion of our adequate oil supply within a generation. His pre diction is affirmed by E. Mackay Edgar the noted English oil eipert, who prophe sies that within ten years the British empire will be selling us 500.OUO.000 bar rels of oil a year. If Mr. Edgar is pessi mistic about our oil supply, he is com pensatingly optimistic about the expan sion of our industry in general, for, if we were to buy 500,000,000 barrels of oil from Great Britain, it would be nearly H,000,OU0 tmrrels more a year than w now produce. '"However there is no question about the gravity of our problem. Secretary Lane declares there is at present no ade quate cheap "substitute for gasoline and other forms of refined oil, and urges economy in its use and in its extraction from the ground. We are charged with a waste of our oil supplies only paralleled by our waste of timber. Better methods are now being used in the oil fields, but it is said that the waste is still great enough to be described as criminal. He also advocates the development ot more efficient engines and of carburetors suited to the use of blended fuels, and the de nial of supplies to oil burning foreign ships whose governments discriminate against American oil burners. "Some of the scientists who have in vestigated the problem go further and recommend the use of coal and electric water power as substitutes in every field in which they can be employed. Our coal .supplies, especially of high-grade coal, will not last forever, cither, but they are expected to last mm h longer than our oil. In their experiments the scientist" have found that it is possible to mix powdered coal with fuel oil on a basis of 40 per cent coal and 00 per cent oil and obtain results equal to an oil fuel. They are also bringing into operation a coking process for high volatile bituminous coal which it is claimed will produce about twice our present consumption of gaso line from the tonnage of coal we use each year, and in addition will produce innumerable necessary by-products, such ns dyes and fertilizers, that will increase the mine value of our coal many times. The first battery of these coking ovens, which in addition to other things will make practically the whole of our high volatile bituminous coal supply available for steel making, is being erected at Granite City, 111. Japan is also prepar ing to adopt the process on a large scale. "The powdered coal mixture ha so far not been commercially perfected, as the coal smks to the bottom of the contain ers. However, the mixture can be trans ported in pipe lines, and it has been sug gested that a solution can be arrived at by establishing central, mixing stations from which nearby plants ran be sup plied. Other proposals for the conserva tion of coal and oil include the super power plan for the electrification of the railroads and the utilization of the water power of the country.. It is claimed for the railwav electrification plan that it forms the cheapest ot only tnree solu tions of the problem of increased efli ciencv in transportation. The other two are reductions of grades and additions to tracks. "The electric locomotive, it is said, will draw twice as much as a steam lo comotive, and through the regenerative breaking process can he made to return from 2.") to 50 per cent of the power it uses. Also, the great waste involved in coal-generated electricity can be largely reduced through the employment of wa ter power where practicable. "The importance of conservation of our fuel sup plies is currently emphasized by conditions in Europe, where much of the delay in the resumption of industry is due to a tark of coal. We have also lately experienced some of the hardships that fo'!ow the interruption of cj.al sup plies nnd are therefore : frame of mind to eive the question serious consid eration. We should lose no time in mak ing the water power of the country avail able for use. In view of the anticipated exhaustion of unreplacable resources, like coal and oil, the sentimental objection to the utilization of our water power seems silly." Cauc for dmiration.
